Lemon rugs are an excellent way to incorporate this cheerful color into your home. Yellow is the lightest hue on the color spectrum, and according to color psychology, it is uplifting and promotes happiness, hope, and fun. Including yellow in your color scheme can make your home more enjoyable to spend time in and more inviting to guests.
We hope you’ll enjoy our selection of lemon area rugs from brands like Surya, Safavieh, Liora Manne, Couristan and more. From fun shapes to vintage patterns, there's something for everyone, and you're sure to find an option that you love.
Adding yellow to your interior decor with lemon rugs is a safe and easy way to incorporate this cheerful color into your space. Too much yellow in a space has been shown to make both adults and children more prone to negative emotions. So, yellow walls or cabinets might be a bit much, but lemon area rugs provide just the right amount of this illuminating color.
Below, we’ll look at some of our favorite ways that designers use lemon rugs in homes today for those who’d like more inspiration:
The kitchen is the most common spot to use a lemon kitchen rug or lemon mat. Modern kitchens often call for a lemon rug runner to accommodate the narrow pathways built to conserve space or navigate around a center island.
Yellow is a popular kitchen color, and your rugs will look lovely if you match them with a lemon-themed backsplash or a few yellow appliances.
Too much yellow is not ideal in a nursery, but some yellow can be an excellent gender-neutral color. We recommend a small lemon shaped rug or a lemon slice rug to pad the floor in front of a crib instead of a large area rug to be on the safe side.
You might pair the lemon area rugs in your playroom or nursery with other brightly-colored fruit accents for an upbeat theme that doesn't rely solely on yellow.
What better way to decorate the dining area than with an uplifting color and fun pattern? A lemon accent rug can make the space feel more inviting and playful. If you're not keen on a lemon pattern, you might try lemon yellow in an oriental or modern design.
Try pairing the rug with a wood or white dining set and other light neutral colors like ivory, white, grey, beige, and tan.
If you’re ready to find the best lemon rugs for your space, you might want to check out these tips to help avoid common buyer’s mistakes first:
Measure Carefully: The size of your rug matters, so measure the room carefully and use a placement guide or our room visualizer tool to pick the right dimensions.
Consider Durability: Pick a rug with cleaning requirements that you can meet with your household’s activity and soil exposure levels.
Get a Rug Pad: Placing your rug on a pad protects the backing and pile from sliding damage caused by surface friction.
